OLDSMAR REAL ESTATE, FLORIDA
The city of Oldsmar was thoughtfully planned by the developer, Ransom Eli Olds of Oldsmobile Cars, to be the ideal community. Olds designed his community after Washington, D.C. His vision was for it to be scenic with neatly manicured tree lined boulevards leading from downtown to the northern edge of Old Tampa Bay In Pinellas County. Olds left the town after losing nearly $3 million. He envisioned a city of 100,000, but the population was only about 200 when he left and now stands at 8,798 which is relatively low for the area. Come experience all that the city of Oldsmar has to offer.
